BR-600: Optimizing a Song

Tags: memory,card,song,erase,optimize,full,card full

When you perform overdubbing or punch-in/out, the data that you rewrite (replace) actually remains on the memory card so that you may perform the UNDO function. In some cases, this unwanted data may occupy a significant amount of space on the memory card. This will cause the time available for recording to be less than it should be. By performing a “Song Optimize”, you can have the BR-600 erase any unnecessary data on the memory card and increase the unused space. The following steps will guide you through Optimizing a Song in the BR-600.

  1. Confirm that PAD is not lit, then press UTILITY.
  2. Use CURSOR buttons to move the cursor to “EDT” and press ENTER.
  3. Use CURSOR buttons to move the cursor to “OPT and press ENTER.
  4. Turn the TIME/VALUE dial and select the song to be optimized.
  5. After selecting the song to optimize, press ENTER. “Are you sure?” appears in the display.
  6. Press ENTER.
  7. Press EXIT repeatedly to return to the Play screen.
